Begin your SCUBA certification online where you can complete the classroom portion of the PADI Open Water Diver course at your own pace, anytime, anywhere with PADI eLearning. It includes:
- Convenient online access to knowledge development course material for one year.
- Unrestricted access to an online version of the PADI Open Water Diver Manual.
- Learning at your own pace and on your own schedule.
- The option to visit or contact ScubaTech anytime during business hours.
The PADI Online Open Water Diver Course is a beginner SCUBA course which is great for those wanting to take their first breath underwater, while learning what they need to know to become a certified SCUBA diver in the comfort of their own home and at their own pace. In fact this portion of the course can be completed anywhere you have internet access. When signing up for your eLearning course, be sure to select ScubaTech PADI #1670 as your Pool and Open Water training facility.
When you have completed or near completion of the online portion of the course, call or email us to schedule your Pool and Open Water training dives. This is when you meet your instructor and the real fun begins. Your instructor will review the academic portion of your course and complete your final exam. Then it’s off for two pool sessions where you learn hands on equipment setup, adjustment and use. This will prepare you for a smooth transition into the open water world.
When you have completed your pool training you will be ready for your four open water certification dives that will be conducted over the next two days. Here you simply repeat all the skills you learned during your pool training in the open water under the supervision of your instructor. Upon completion of your training dives you will be certified as an Open Water Diver.
Included in the cost of the course are the pool training sessions, boat dives, registration fees, and all SCUBA equipment needed for your training dives. If you decide to dive with us again after your certification, we highly recommend hiring a divemaster as you will be diving on new and unfamiliar sites.
The eLearning class requires the purchase of an eLearning Packet which includes log book, RDP (recreational dive planner) and student file folder. You will need to have your own personal snorkeling system which should include mask, snorkel, booties and fins and a surface signaling device. We also recommend an equipment bag for storage. Your snorkeling system should be properly sized for comfort, fit and safety. Our experienced and friendly staff will be happy to assist you with your selection to make certain that your equipment is specifically and correctly fitted to you.
